I'm planning my first trip in a couple weeks. I found this site to be super-informative (not to mention well-written and designed): http://www.guidetothepoint.com/thepoint/

Hit Raptor first because it is in the front, then go to the Blue Streak, WildCat, Iron Dragon, Corkscrew, Millennium Force, Mantis, Cedar Creek Mine Ride, Gemini, Magnum XL 200, Mean Streak, then go all the way beack to Disaster Transport. This is the most logical way to do it but do it whatever way you want.

I'd have to disagree. First, run to MF, then over to Mantis. After that, make a big circle around the back of the park...hit Cedar Creek Mine Ride, Mean Streak, Gemini, Magnum, Corkscrew, Power Tower, Iron Dragon, and Wildcat (in that order).
After that head to the front of the park to get on Raptor...the lines usually die down around late afternoon, early evening. Then go over and hit Disaster Transport.
After this, hit any coaster you want to re-ride.
There are a lot of people that ask about crowds on any given day, and there are many factors that go into them. So we can't really tell you how busy it will be.
There is a thread over at GTTP open now that asks many of your questions...

The best tip is to not go. In August, the park is packed. You'll be lucky to get under an hour wait on Mean Streak, let alone any good ride...

CpGenius is correct about the order, hit MF first. Goto the Marina Gate entrance and be there 1 hour before the park opens. Run to MF when the gate opens and get your first MF ride as a walkon, then your 2nd ride will be half an hour.
Unfortunately, Everdred is correct about the crowds. I went last year during the 2nd week of August and the place was packed, even on a Tuesday.
It's the 3rd and last week of August that crowds die down and people get ready for school. If you can move your trip 1 week forward to the end of August, then do it. Especially the last week of August, I heard of people getting lots of walkon rides, I was so jealous.
